I'm unsure how many of you played Defender's Quest. Yes, it wasn't pretty to look at -- but it was a rather excellent tower-defense title, one that featured rock-solid mechanics and a commendable attempt at telling an engaging story. The sequel has been detailed, and it's got animator Dean Dodrill of Dust: An Elysian Tail and artist Karen Petrasko on board. Oh, this is going to be good.

While Defenders Quest II: Mists of Ruin isn't going the Kickstarter route, it is running a pre-order drive to help fund development. There are multiple tiers, but the basic one, priced at $15, includes the original game right now and the sequel once it's finished.

Level Up Labs says it'll make Mists of Ruin no matter how much money comes in from pre-orders and that "this is just your opportunity to get in early and get some rewards." If you're among those who aren't typically comfortable with crowdfunding, that should put your mind at ease.

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
